    Bronco Sport Completely Uncovered

    You mean like the original V6 mustangs of the 60s? Ranger offers one engine and people bitch. BS offers two and people bitch. Can’t win.

    I swear Nissan must be kicking themselves that they didn't keep the Xterra. Always liked them.

    I assume you mean V8. The Ranger has an excellent engine. I agree that people complaining about it are just bitching. The 1.5 engine by all accounts isn’t refined enough for the Escape/BS. Making the 2.0 standard with the 2.3 and/or the 2.5 hybrid would seem much better choices, especially if the BS is premium pricing compared to Escape.

    Yeah I realised that Ford is putting the 1.5 in there, a bit disappointing that Ford didn't back itself in with higher series engines, I would have thought Bronco Sport deserved a better basic performance level especially with premium prices but that's just me. In this vehicle a 1.5 I-3 just seems like down market dogshit that should be confined to European Ford vehicles, not USA.

    I had a rental escape with it and I didn’t care for it one bit. It was loud with lots of vibration. Even the nicest vehicle will feel inferior with a loud engine. Just on refinement alone, there’s a night and day difference between my 2017 escape with a 2.0 and the 2020 with 1.5.

    The Jeep Compass and Subaru XV Crosstrek both are off road oriented small SUVs/crossovers that have powertrains reviewers regularly trash, but the buying public doesn't really seem to care. They are both in the top 10 in their market and combined sell over 200,000 per year. Relatively low price and some capability beyond other SUVs seems to have a solid market that Ford wants to compete in with this Bronco.

    Sales slowing down? Chicago Effect

    What up Decker! HAAY,the world is in a panic over an illness that for 90% of the people who will contract it, is no worse than the flu?Maybe now Liberals will see that resources are limited and that the USA taxpayer cannot {neither has the obligation} to provide "free" this and that along with a guaranteed minimum standard of living to the rest of the freakin! planet for crying out loud.Resources are garnered through somebody`s work,productive behavior,not a government check written out of the blue.If I am not for myself than who will be?Self preservation is not immoral. God Bless the healthcare workers and first responders ,military personnel,who are helping to keep what is left of society together during these difficult times.

    Fully aware of that, his complaint was of his 2018 Escape 15L EB that in his words were "it kinda sucks"...I am just saying that he may think "it kinda sucks" but for its intended audience, most will not give it a second thought....I believe that the same will be true of the 2020 variant with its 3 cylinder EB motor...enthusiasts will not be kind to it, but the intended audience will never give it a second thought. The enthusiast will simply side-step it and get the 2.0L EB motor instead if the 2020 Escape is their final choice.

    2020 version is different than the 218 version. For one, the new one is a 3 cylinder, and so far reviews haven't exactly been kind to it.

    It’s perfectly fine if you stop obsessing about it and just get used to it. And they can’t let you shut it off permanently because it won’t count towards EPA fuel economy and CAFE.

    Raptor brake squeal with only 700 miles

    Living in the sticks or just going off-road and driving on dirt/gravel roads it's not unheard of (pun intended) to get small stones wedged in between the brake rotor and say, a heat shield which can cause a squeal.

    Yeah, its not a terrible engine, however for something with the Bronco name I would hope Ford would distinguish it with higher performing engines and performance. I just don't want Ford to play it too conservative even with the smaller Bronco. As for the Auto/Stop start its just an annoyance, it would be easy to add into your Sync system a permanent off instead of a button every time you drive, just a personal gripe though.

    Ahhh, the 1970's were an interesting time style wise....vinyl tops, half tops, Ghia editions, loads of chrome, hood ornaments etc etc etc were all the rage....I was a young teen growing up in the 70's and I loved it....all personal preferences I suppose.

    Yeah, I am shocked Ford didnt go with 2.0L eb standard and 2.3eb as higher end option. I have a 2018 escape 4x4 with the 1.5l and it kinda sucks. To put this in a "off-road" vehicle is a mistake. Plus I hope they put in a permanent way to disable auto-stop start. Hopefully more information is coming out soon.

    Very puzzling engine choice in such a supposed enthusiast, performance sub-brand 🤔

    Yep, ‘71 BOSS 351 was one of (If not) the fastest 1/4 mile Mustangs from ‘65-‘73 model years. That almost horizontal back window is something to behold when sitting in the drivers seat. I tend to like the style.

    yeah they won't release me until the 31st when they do those mass lay offs but now they want me to file unemployment/sub pay for 2 weeks just freaking let me go please, and yes I'm going to write a book titled "I didn't do it but I was there". They're keeping my money and not cutting me loose, finally get a release date and the world comes to an end. Have fun making ventilators, when ya run out of toilet paper theres always that contract

    Can confirm that's normal it's due to the waste gates on the turbo they are loose when cold which is why it takes about a minute to stop. That gives it a chance for the metal to expand and seat properly.

    Not cheap parts - poor engineering. It's the design of the engine block.
